Dear Ones,


Here is a Meditation to Tranquilize the Mind, from the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. It takes only 3 minutes, and works very well for feelings of anxiety occasioned by sensitivity to solar events. It is useful as an adjunct to traditional medicine …

This is one of the most effective meditations I know of to tranquilize the mind. I used to use it while teaching beginner kundalini yoga classes many years ago. Nearly instant peace of mind, wow!

Take care to place the fingers in position exactly as described.

The link mentions chanting a mantra. A mantra is a word or word phrase used to regulate one’s own mind. The words of each mantra have a particular quality, rhythm, and effect. In the case of this meditation, since the mantra is to be repeated 11-21 times, all on the same breath, I always used to pick a pretty short mantra. Here are a few possibilities:

“Sat Naam” (meaning ‘truth is my name’ or ‘truth is where it’s at’)
“Om” (a name for God immanent and transcendent)
“Amen” (meaning ‘so be it’)

Of course you can use a longer mantra, too. A few examples:

“Jesus Christ, Lord of the Universe” or
“Jesus, Light of My Life” or
“Mother Mary, pray for me” or
“God, please guide me”

But if you use a longer mantra, you will want to repeat it less than 11 times … just keep within your comfort zone.

Keeping within the comfort zone is important for everyone, and especially so for young people and for expectant mothers. I figure, I cannot expect to feel my heart and live my life from love if I cannot allow myself always to be in my comfort zone.


Here is a wonderful yogic resource for psychological self-help in times of crisis, when no psychologist or psychiatrist, and no psychopharmacologic medications may be available …
